the family's frustration. >> reporter: the whole matter landed in small-claims court here today in santa rosa, but i'm told the families are working toward reaching a resolution. but one family still has questions as to what a student can do to defend themselves. it's a disturbing cell phone video. the parents of one 16 year old girl say she had no choice but to fight back with two girls attacking her. >> i've reviewed the video over and over, asking myself, could she have done something differently in this, and i keep coming back to no. >> reporter: mejia says the girls from another school started cyber bullying her daughter after she began dating a new guy, then jumped her at the high school. >> if this would have happened anywhere else, you have the civil right to defend yourself, even if that means hitting your attacker back. but when it happens at a school,

6:09 pm
>> reporter: curtis says the new indictment is actually good news for raymond chow. >> it's a sign of weakness in the prosecution. >> reporter: well, we'll see. it's interesting to note that our legal analyst says much of what he has read appears to be the government laying out scenarios and seeing who would cross the line and agree to participate in what they believe to be a criminal enterprise. i asked him, can you get a conviction based on something that is a fabrication? he said absolutely. it happens all the time. reporting from the federal courthouse, nbc bay area news. still ahead, it went up in seconds. another limo burned in the bay area. why firefighters say it could have been much worse. also. one bottled water and one

6:13 pm
passengers it most certainly would have been a deadly situation. can you see there are remnants of the fire right here on the sidewalk. firefighters say the fire burred so hot and so fast it left that limacine incinerated in mere minutes. >> it was fully involved. and the potential for people surviving that was very little. >> reporter: that's what vallejo firefighters were thinking as they responded to a limacine fire. the driver and owner says he had just taken to the limo to the car wash when it started overheating. it was engulfed in flames in less than three minutes. >> with the carpeting and upholstery and wood paneling inside those limacines, very, very flammable. >> had there been small children, elderly inside that limo, it would have been a different scenario. >> reporter: luckily there were no passengers on board, but that was not the case last year when five women died when the limo

6:17 pm
pay for their $1.3 billion monume monument, but is $8 worth the price for a piece of pizza? so they'll be dirk outshing out of green for the red and gold. some of the other surface streets will have traffic. maybe something to consider if you're going to the ball game, arrive very early. live outside the stadium. >> did he say it was $12 for water and m&ms? >> i think you should eat at home before you go. >> can we bring our own m&ms? >> you can't do that. >> is it large? small? >> small, small.

6:24 pm
anytime. it shows how powerful a widely read writer can be. and, oh, if you look around this room, you'll see how powerful women can be. >> we have actual wires coming out of our handbags because we're so well-connected. >> reporter: they're the women of the blogger conference. and if you hear tech companies say they can't find qualified women to hire -- >> if they would come here and look around, they would see women of all manner of technical expertise and knowledge and that is entirely untrue. >> we have 150 to 200 women speakers here at this conference, across every discipline and across every skill. and you know what? if i want to find them, i don't find it hard to find them, but i have to go in with the intention of finding them. >> reporter: they're techies in the spotlight, with entire brands vying for their attention and skills needed in silicon valley. >> women are out there.

6:28 pm
right now at 6:30, public money meant for fire protection. tonight we investigate why those funds are going to a private clubhouse instead. it's unfolding in one local
6:29 pm
community. >> special tax districts are all over the state and operate with little oversight. let's bring in steven stock who exposes a controversial project. >> it's a small town story with big implications for any one living in a special tax district in california. the proposal, to use tax dollars to build a facility with recreational features that would be off limits to some of the sail taxpayers. take a look around. next to the recently renovated exclusive swimming pool, the sleepy hollow homes association clubhouse built in the 1950s is showing its age. >> it's in dire need of replacement. >> the facility needs to be replaced. >> something needs to be done because it's falling apart. >> reporter: while almost all of these people agree this clubhouse needs replacing, they disagree how to pay for it. >> i don't think that's the proper use of taxpayer funds.
6:30 pm
>> these tax dollars are going to build an emergency facility. >> reporter: the 2500 or so residents pay 17% of their base property tax to cover fire and emergency services. the fire district's three-member board is now considering using 2 million of its tax reserves to help build a new, already planned $2.5 million clubhouse to replace the old one. while everybody has to pay the fire tax, not everyone is a member of the homes association. and that means they don't have full access to the clubhouse or the pool. >> private citizens. we've raised about $500,000. >> reporter: john grubbs serves as chairman of the sleepy hollow charitable foundation, to raise money for the construction of the new facility. >> that's going to be matched with the $2 million from the fire protection district. >> reporter: how critical is the $2 million to your project? >> to this project as it currently stands, it's very
6:31 pm
critical. >> reporter: so critical that the website tracking donations has already assumed it's getting the $2 million funding, even though it hasn't been approved yet. >> i just think that the money could be better spent. >> reporter: and that's the rub for residents like john parente who lives across the street. he does not pay to be a member of the association or the pool, yet his tax dollars would go to build the new facility if the deal is approved. >> it's taxpayer funds, and it should be used for taxpayer purposes, not for building somebody's dream clubhouse. >> i think it's a misuse of the taxpayer dollars. >> reporter: neighbor erik mccauseland has lived in sleepy hollow all his life. he is a dues-paying member of the association and the pool. >> there are other ways to use that money than putting it into a structure not used for the fire district. >> reporter: they call it an emergency shelter, they point to these pages showing possible emergency uses, including a
6:32 pm
permanent fire district office there. >> what your tax dollars are going for which you have complete use of as a member of the public is the public safety of this building. >> reporter: richard serves as spokesman for the fire protection board. all three members are also members of the homes association. >> this would be available for any public safety purpose for free. >> reporter: there are people who are not members who pay taxes to your tax district, right? >> right. >> reporter: why is it appropriate for them to use their tax dollars to build this clubhouse? >> we're not building a clubhouse. >> reporter: but take a look at this. the official plans call it a clubhouse and a community center, not an emergency center. the plans show an elaborate layout, including a library, a coffee bar, even a bocci ball court. off limits to anyone who is not
6:33 pm
a paying member. >> is this a misuse of tax dollars? >> it is a public/private partnership to improve the safety for all the residents, all the members of the sleepy hollow fire protection of in town. >> it's difficult to distinguish cleanly between private purposes and public purposes. >> reporter: he teaches tax law at u.c. berkeley. he estimates there are as many as 5,000 of these special districts in california. and there is very little oversight. >> they don't teents governor or anybody else directly. >> it's using taxpayer funds for a private organization. >> reporter: even if it serves emergency funks once in a while, that's not enough to merit their tax dollar ashes footing 80% of the bill. >> i think there's better ways to serve all the residences of sleepy holie.
6:34 pm
>> reporter: the fire district board has already paid $25,000 from its reserves for an architect to draw up those plans you just saw. but board members insist this isn't a done deal yet. in fact, a public hearing on this proposal is scheduled there in sleepy hollow for august 9th. in cases like this, voters only have a few recourses. they can change things by calling for a recall election, or they can take the district to court and sue them. raj, jessica? >> if you have a tip for stephen stock or anyone in our investigative unit, we urge you to give us a call or send us an e-mail. hoping for a moment of peace. hours from now, a 12-hour cease-fire will begin in gaza. israel making the offer after turning down a week-long truce proposed by john kerry. hamas agreed. even as that battle pauses, they

6:36 pm
unaccounted for. they might have burned. investigators have also discovered a new section of wreckage hidden in nearby woods. they believe pro-russian rebels shot down the plane with a missile. the immigration crisis escalating. president obama is proposing a plan to deal with the surging number of children coming in from central america. >> they are calling that, undocumented children are fleeing by the thousands and nothing seems to stop them from risking their lives to get here. president obama wants to offer them formal asylum hearings not here in the u.s. but in their home countries. he shared the idea with the presidents of el salvador, guatema guatemala. >> there may be some narrow
6:37 pm
circumstances in which there is a humanitarian or a refugee status that a family might be eligible for. if that were the case, it would be better for them to apply in country. >> but republicans say the president needs to focus on a plan to speed up the deportations of children who have already fled here to the u.s. more than 50,000 since last fall. the president says his $4 billion package to beef up the borders and deportations is still on the table but republicans don't like that plan either. unfortunately, nothing may be agreed upon. congress is scheduled to go home in august for summer break. president obama has asked lawmakers to cancel their vacations. janelle wang, nbc bay area news. with prices at a premium, is there anything that you can do to make a gallon of gas go farther? sam brock gives us a reality check next. and good evening. i'm meteorologist jeff ranieri.

6:46 pm
those time-honored techniques actually work? let's examine a few claims, starting with the idea that you shouldn't skimp on gas by going to a non-name-brand station, true? false. the federal government demands all gasoline products meet the same standards for quality and content. as we discovered driving to different stations, the price can be 20 cents or 30 cents cheaper at off-brand pumps. but the gas is no less pure. it's an easy way to stash some cash. the other thing we looked at is rolling down your window and whether that can affect your fuel economy. it all depends on how fast you're driving. if you're going below 45 miles per hour or stop and go traffic you'll save more with your windows down, again, the claim is wrong. but if you're on the freeway
6:47 pm
driving above 45, it's better to use your air conditioning because wind forces your car to work harder, so ac is preferable. turns out you can actually improve your gas mileage by up to 3.3% by keeping your tires properly inflated. and properly inflated tires are safer and last longer. that, according to the u.s. department of energy. i'm sam brock. that's today's reality check. >> okay. so we have to fill up our tires, roll up our windows, and we can go to any gas station we want to. >> i like to check my tires frequently. i like that little gadget. i don't know what it's called, but i like it. we're counting down to the first pitch, giants and dodgers at the ballpark. >> we'll get to the forecast coming up. but we did update some of the
6:48 pm
